Munchkins 2CS-Halloween

Hello and happy Monday everyone!! I feel like it's been ages since I've done any posting or crafting. Well I'm making up for it today. Hopefully I have visited your blogs and left you some lovely comments, if not, I'll be sure to stop by soon.
This morning I wanted to share my card that I am sending to Cyn for the Munchkins September two card swap. The theme for September is Halloween. Woo Hoo!! This is my first time participating and I can't wait to see what I receive from my swap partner. The fun is in the anticipation. Since the theme is Halloween, I figured it would be a perfect time to use my newest stamp,
Sweet, or is she Toxic (? hehehe) from The Greeting Farm. I actually got my set for my birthday, yay, and have used it only once to make a card for my friend. I decided to use the minimal amount of items on my card. Used only 2 of the stamps from the set to create a background on some dp and drew in a couple spider webs to break up the whiteness for the main scene. I colored her hair two-toned green and sparkled it up. I also sparkled the webs with a clear gel pen, but you'll just have to take my word for it as they don't show up very well in either picture. I left out the sentiment and also left the inside blank just in case my swap partner wanted to use it for something else. I'm so happy with the result and had so much fun in the process. I hope Cyn and my partner like it as well. I have to get it in the mail today as it's late, but hopefully I can claim it's on Hawaiian time. :) Mahalo for stopping by today... Have a great day!
